Colours of 2012

Pantone named it's "Colour of 2012" today and it is called Tangerine Tango.  As strange as the name is, it is actually a gorgeous shade of orange, or as the press release says:  "Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."  Hmm.  I think they are overselling it a bit, but I love the idea of a warm colour to ring in the new year.

Now I am dreaming of 2012 in shades of Tangerine Tango and all the other great colours from Pantone's Spring 2012 Fashion Colour Trend report after looking at some of the creations inspired by them.
